I'll most likely be seeing some of the Illinois boys including Rich next weekend. We all will be meeting Bob Luce's wife Sharon Lass for lunch.

Sharon Luce is actually living in Glenview.

I can show near South Side, Bridgeport, Chinatown  and Taylor Street to anyone ever coming to Chicago.

I'm terrible with the North Side.

My brother just retired from the Police Dept. He worked in the Taylor Street area. Have you ever been to Rosals?
Broke, if you are a lover of Italian food, Rosals is a must. Btw, Taylor Street ain't the same now that all the wise guys got pinched two years ago.

BT,

I've been to Rosal's and just about every place on Taylor Street.
They are all good.
If I don't feel like dressing up I just go to Pompeii. The selection of pizza slices are tremendous.

I actually live in walking distance of Ricobenes which features the breaded steak sandwich. Between that sandwich and Maxwell St. Polish sausages I wound up with a stent a few years back.

I can't invite anyone back to the old wrestling museum because I retired three weeks ago.

 When we do get together from now on it will be at the bar where we had Ox Baker, Mad Dog Vachon and Baron Von Rashcke and then a walk over to Ricobenes.
Claw and Heretic will vouch for Ricobenes.

I'm cheap, so I'm staying in Itasca for most of the trip and taking the train in.

That breaded steak was so huge that I don't think Moose Cholak could've finished it.

Speaking of Moose, I used to live about amile from him over on the East Side.

Don't just stop at the beef. Let them throw on a piece of Italian sausage on it and make we call a "combination" sandwich.

I feel like lots of guys have started threads about trips to Chicago in the past couple of years.  Here's mine, and I'm pretty sure DFG and HBF started some too.  Awesome city.

Agreed. And if you can find the thread I started, you get the added pleasure of seeing me get hit in the family jewels by a home run ball at Wrigley Field.

I went to Chicago and wound up appearing on an episode of "America's Funniest Home Videos".

I give you props for admitting that was you. I would. Never admit it. 😄
